Man gets probation in standoff
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man involved in a standoff with borough police last summer was sentenced Wednesday by Judge John Walker in Franklin County Court to three years probation.
Terry L. Brown, 51, of 439 W. Queen St., pleaded guilty Feb. 4 to recklessly endangering other people and resisting arrest in the July 15, 1997, incident at his home. Charges of unlawful restraint, false imprisonment and simple assault were dropped in exchange for the plea.
All of the charges against Brown were misdemeanors.
The incident for which he was arrested ended late on the morning of July 15, when members of the Chambersburg Police Department's Special Emergency Team fired tear gas into the home.
